That poster is super pretty.^^ And I love the quote she used too.
Ohh, and Daisy's character makes her first appearance in this chapter! She seems so sweet, and I feel like Mukai brought her there just to flaunt her in front of Lillith. I feel bad for both of them, they should stay away from him! Ok, maybe thats a little much, but still, I'm not so sure I have a good feeling about him.
Lillith and Pi's little reunion was so cute! His mom seems soo sweet too. I can tell that Pi feels bad for phasing her out the way they are' but I can also tell that he cares more about Toma than his own feelings.
Lillith may not like working in Starbucks, but she really seems to know what type of coffee would really suit someones tastes. And she's so sweet, not allowing Pi's mom to pay for their drinks.
Ohh, she finally found out about Toma's dad. I can totally relate to her reaction. To find out about someone losing a parent or loved one, even if you don't like the person, or in Lillith's case, deny that you like the person, it's still easy to put yourself in their place, and feel some sadness for them.
And I totally feel for Toma, all those looks, and everyone being so careful around im, only makes things worse. They mean well, but sometimes it's best, to treat them normally, like a human being, not a wounded animal.
Jeez, even when Koyama is depressed and drinking, he's so blunt, and knows what exactly Toma is thinking.
Oh. Haruma and Talia... That's whats got poor Koya so down. I feel so bad, but I absolutely love this line; “I think there’s always a moment you can point to and be like shit- that’s where I fucked up and let her in. What a mistake.” But, that might be because of my stance on relationships. XD
Ceil makes an appearance too! Yayy! And she's a bartender! Paying more attention to those with money. XD She must have some real money problems, huh? Hiding tips and whatnot.
Shige is so blunt. I just love his friendship with Lillith. It's so funny, it started at a party, and now their cuddling on couches, and taking pictures together.
*narrows eyes at Mukai* I don't know about him. He'd better not hurt Lillith or Daisy! *shakes fist at him* Although, I guess he's alright, hanging out with people who work for him like Shige. XD
I like what Shige and Christine have to say about friendships. Because, what they say is true. It doesn't matter, if only one person cares about a relationship, but the other doesn't, it won't last, no matter how strong said relationship used to be. Poor Lillith.
Toma really waited for Ceil too? I have to say I'm a little shocked, but, then again, Toma isn't the same person he was before his dad passed away.
Their meeting seems like the start of a really sweet friendship.
I can't wait for another update! And, I can't wait to see the characters develop, the new ones, and the old ones! And, I can't wait to see the relationships grow either. Thank you for this update, I loved it so much!
And like i said earlier, I can't wait for the next! *hearts*
Author's Response: I'm super late at responding but I'm going to try because if I don't I'll forget again! But you're right Mukai did just bring her there to flaunt her. Daisy was just left unaware. And loll aww no you're right! They should stay away from him. He's trouble! But trouble can be fun too...trouble invites trouble :) so in a way...that should tell us about where Lillith's character's going to go.
Isn't she cuteee? I like her. I love writing about parents...probably because I still live with mine. Keh, Lillith would know because I would know! I'm a starbucks maniac (at work they're calling me baller because I go everyday but honestly it's just a) something to do since I don't really have anyone to hang out with at lunch and b) something I enjoy so :D keh.
I know exactly what you mean :( every time you hear about someone losing a parent it's incredibly sad. Especially at a younger age because you haven't had the chance to form your own family yet. (Koyama is not a happy person right now, I should probably spend some time expanding on that whole dynamic but in a not so depressing manner BUT LOLLL I LOVE THAT LINE TOO. But :( Ceil that's sad that's your stance on relationships...not that I can't say that too I mean...I wrote it but T.T we should be more positive).
CEIL IS AMAZING :D she has her own problems too though and they'll come to light as Toma struggles to break through her barriers and find out more about her. *giggles* poor Shige...he has his own problems too that come out in this chapter.
Loll Mukai and Shige are poles apart...bosses and employees usually are I find :O in terms of their management style and the way they talk. Mukai talks in a calculating methodic manner, Shige just says whatever's in his mouth.
Oh man that tension is coming to a riseee we'll see how the girls react as their friendship starts to combust a little bit. Toma would have just told himself fuck it before but he's seeing the value of investing time in a person which is why he decided to invest in Ceil. He didn't invest as much time in his relationship with his parents at the end - he gave up trying to spend time with people and using them was the only way he could relate to people. So in a way him waiting for her means that he's willing to be open to letting people in properly again. (Friendship psht).
:DDDD I'm glad you enjoyed it lovely! I hope you enjoy the new one too! *hugs* I love your reviews as always and I hope you're doing well :D!!
